Okay, so, this past week I pretty much gave up anything that you deep down know that you’re not supposed to eat. This included: biscuits, crisps, chocolate, bread, processed meats, sweets… The Lot! I swapped my usual lunch of a sandwich, crisps and chocolate for a pot of homemade tomato soup and a yoghurt and I ‘upped’ my fluid intake as I realised that I don’t drink half as much water etc. as I should.
I wasn’t very well on Monday and came home from work and pretty much slept for the entire day in bed – I think it was a mixture of a migraine, the end of a horrific cold, tiredness and stress – so I stuck to my diet like glue, but found it difficult to drink the fluids. I also had Tuesday off, but drank loads more than I needed to, so counteracted Monday’s lack. The rest of the week went really, really well and I almost didn’t miss any of it! I think I was just in the right mind set. I did have a bacon sandwich for my lunch around my Aunt’s house on Saturday, but she knows me so well that she cut all of the fat off of the bacon, so it wasn’t all bad. Lol.
Anyway, I have managed to lose 7lbs this week! This is a crazy amount and I am super happy with it! As I mentioned last week, I weighed myself and was disgusted to find out that I had put on the most weight that I ever had! So, I am going to continue with what I am doing and hope that I can lose a little bit more. I am actually enjoying the challenge of losing the weight, so there’s no reason why I can’t continue this for next week’s ‘Give Up’.
What have you been giving up? Have you stuck to your New Year’s Resolution or have you already given up on it? It doesn’t really matter, the main thing is that you get back to improving your health/lifestyle (as these are the most common ones)!
Have a lovely, sunny day!
Peace and love,
